I’m new to the club, having recently bought a Atco Royale off eBay in need of some refurbishment... I came across your website a number of times whilst searching for some how to instruction on WWW.
The machine was advertised as a non starter which I saw as a bit of a challenge more than anything else and picked it up quite inexpensively. However it’s turning out to be not quite as simple a challenge as I first thought...
Having got a spark after cleaning rust from the flywheel and coil, I was cleaning the carb when I noticed significant rust in the fuel tank... think it needs a new tank. Have emailed Paul at Mertens to see if he can assist..
Any other thoughts most gratefully received!
